{Crochet} Flower Head Bands

Need a last minute {quick & cheap} thoughtful gift? I did. I made 5 headbands in a matter of a couple hours using "Wool Ease" from Walmart.

 "Wool-Ease Thick & Quick" yarn is about $3 a pop ($6 at craft stores). You can make 2 headbands per "bundle thingy". It only takes a chain + 3 double crochet's rows for you crochet-ers out there. So for about $12 I made 5 headbands (better than $50 if you bought them right out). These are my own creations {I did not follow any pattern for the flowers or bands} and my first go around. I can't wait to make some more and get a little better.


  1. Very cute. I'm so tempted to learn how to crochet. I especially like the neutral colors, these would look great with anything.

  2. I found you through Kalleen's Linky party.

    I just saw some like these a week ago in a handcrafter's store, and thought I should make some. I forgot them until I saw yours. And yours are even cuter! I'm going to put these on my To Do List.

  3. I love these! You are very creative and I am so grateful for the time you put into sharing your projects with others.

  4. Where did you learn how to do this. Any direction would be great

  5. Kalleen,
    Crocheting is so easy, if you have someone show you. I cannot understand how anyone understands any "written" direction, it's like another language. YouTube is also great.

  6. Kristy,
    My mom taught me how to crochet. The bands are simple stitches, 1 chain and 3 double crochets. I couldn't tell you how I did each flower... they are all different since I was making it up as I went (sheepish face). YouTube has some good tutorials on crochet flowers though.
